Monochromatic by Ian Battaglia

This is a collection of short stories I write weekly, under the banner of Monochromatic. While there are consistent themes and interests, there’s no through line for the work. The genre swings from sci-fi to fantasy to realistic fiction and back. The stories vary in length, but are mostly short, intended to be quick reads. Perhaps comparable to the . . .

Adam Maxwell’s Fiction Lounge by Adam Maxwell

Adam’s subject matter tends towards the surreal or at least the very least weird. His writing has been described in the press as a ‘Chandler-esque hard-boiled cocktail, stirred with equal parts humour, mystery, gut-wrenching realism, and trademark minimalism’, ‘weird, wonderful, twisted and witty’ and even ‘almost Fawlty Towers’ which is, unsurprisingly, one of his favourites. His first book, a collection . . .

THE BEST SHORT STORIES OF CLIFF BURNS (1985-2009)

"The Literary Equivalent of Far Side Cartoons"

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Dec 7, 2010: My favourite story in this collection "Printed Matter" has a distinctive format: it takes the form of a series of letters from a recluse to the editor of his favourite mail order book company – and with each letter it becomes more and more apparent that at least one of them is very, very, scarily sick!

DENHAM'S DENTIFRICE

Web Fiction Sketch Comedy

By revfitz, author of Existential Terror and Breakfast

If these things sounded more like a warning to you than odd praise, turn back now! There is nothing here for you. If, however, the idea of Monty Python’s Flying Circus put to pen and prose sounds appealing, god’s speed, you just found your new home.

Denham’s Dentrifice is written by Phineas Clockword, and [more . . .]
